This year, the Swedish synthpop/EBM icons Covenant bring the sounds of a thousand crumbling Berlin Walls into The Cable Factory.

A tradition that has been shaped in recent years by Front 242 and Aavikko, among others.

Armed with their impressive 20-year back catalogue and a steady stream of new releases to soothe the ears of old and new fans, Covenant visited Finland the last time three years ago, playing in Nosturi.

Dr. James Grime is a lecturer and public speaker on behalf of the Millennium Mathematics Project and the University of Cambridge. He can be mostly found touring the world giving talks about the history and mathematics of codes and codebreaking. When not doing this, James manages to bother anyone left who may not have seen him speak in person, with an (almost) weekly series of puzzles, tricks and mathematics on YouTube.

For a little special something at The Alternative Party, James will be demonstrating a genuine World War II Enigma Machine still fresh and dripping from the wreckage of a German U-Boat. The hunt for Red October is on! 

Read Dr. Jame's interview from here, or watch the interview video.
